NCEM LogoOur Vision - A County that is Aware, Prepared, and Resilient!

Our Mission - To provide Nassau County residents the education and support necessary to reduce risks and protect both lives and property from natural and man-made hazards using a whole-community approach to disaster preparedness, response, recovery, and mitigation.

Residents have personal responsibility for their safety.  Our free Preparedness Guide has loads of good information about local hazards and things you should do to mitigate risk, reduce your vulnerability, and increase your resilience!  Pick up a printed copy at the EOC or any of our outreach events, or download an electronic copy below.  

Sign up for Alert Nassau Citizen Alerts to receive emergency incident notification calls, texts, emails, and/or smartphone app messages.  We can't alert you if we don't have your contact information! 

Sign up for E-Notify at the bottom of this page to receive text alerts whenever NCEM posts News Flashes or makes changes to our Calendar.
